    Mordecai and Rigby must save Christmas by destroying a gift for Santa Claus. be honest, I thought this was funnier than It's a SpongeBob Christmas special. It is even better than that. They got more violent action. That what I like the most of this show. It has gotten better than ever. All the characters here were very likable. That could means the sign that the characters had improved a lot since the third season. Sean Szeles, Kat Morris, Benton Connor, and Hilary Florido were all the storyboard/writing team for this special and they all did a kick-butt job. A lot times better than their previous collaborations on the second Halloween special. The humor in the episode contains some of Muscle Man's lines (he was surprisingly funnier and not a jerk), running gag of everyone calling Benson's sweater ugly, Thomas is stuck on the stairs, Mordecai and Rigby's letters ("Dear Santa, dude, give me an invisibility "Santa, dude, don't be a jerk, just give me an invisiblity Mordecai and Rigby getting the invisible cloak, etc. The fight scene with Mordecai and Rigby against the the elf was pretty awesome and I loved how they played Trans Orchestra's Carol of the Bells song in the background. Overall this is worth seeing every holiday season... reccomended to every fans and non fans of the show. 10/10moreless

    I thought this was once again an awesome episode of Regular Show. It was so hilarious. This episode is now offically the best episode of Season 4. It definetly beats Exit 9B! The plot is Mordecai and Rigby must save Christmas by destroying a gift for Santa Claus. There are a bunch of hilarious moments in this episode. "Dear Santa DUDE, Give me an invisibility cloak. Santa DUDE, don't be a jerk just give me an invisibility cloak!" Pops wrestling with the polar bear was so intense and shocking and it was hilarious when he won. It was kind of predicable that he would but it was hilarious that he did. Thomas getting his head stuck in thr rails. Once again Thomas only made a cameo appearance. It's officail Thomas isn't gonna be that big of a character in this show. There a bunch more hilarious moments. The action in this episode was so intense and epic. Overall, the best Christmas specail of Regular Show and one of the best Christmas specails of all time.moreless

    I don't think I'm going to review every single new episode of Regular Show like I used to because I get too lazy. Maybe I'll review some episodes on this season from time to time and that's it. Anyways, I was in the mood to review this first ever Christmas special and man was it completely awesome. I LOVED this Christmas special and out of all the Season 4 episodes, it's my #1 favorite special. It's more awesome than any other episodes in this season and even more epic than that Season 4 Premiere "Exit 9B". I exceeded my every expectations. It's also the hardest I've laughed at a Regular Show episode which really hasn't happened in a while. I do laugh but just not so hard that I almost choke. Ed Asner was an amazing guest-voice star as Santa Claus and Thomas Haden Church was fantastic as the guest-voice actor of Rogue Elf. I laughed at so many parts like Thomas getting his head stuck in the stairs (sucks how he couldn't be involved in the adventure though but that really doesn't bug me AT ALL), MuscleMan saying how he almost died from the booby traps, the ending with Mordecai and Rigby getting their invisible gift and a note saying "Sometimes you have to break the rules", and many many MANY more hilarious moments. The storyline was spectacular, the action sequences were intense and completely mind-blowing. I was not bored at one scene, I have absolutely no problems or even a small nit-pick, and it just exceeded every single of my expectations. One of my favorite episodes from "Regular Show" and the Best SPECIAL I have ever seen. A MUST-SEE... please watch, my #1 favorite episode/special from Season 4 most definitely. 10/10moreless

    • Lord of the Rings The Return of the King


      The whole conflict about the "Gift" that needed to be destroyed in the lava pit inside the cave is a reference to the book Lord of the Rings The Return of the King, the epic high fantasy novel written by English philologist and professor J. R. R. Tolkien.


      In this book (and in the movie adaptation by Peter Jackson)  Frodo has to take the ring into the volcano Cracks of Doom and throw it there into the lava.   Frodo is unable to resist the power of the evil ring and claims it for himself until it's bitten away from him by Gollum who accidentally fell into the lava.


       


      The Goonies:


      The cave filled with deadly traps is a reference to the 1985 movie The Goonies. in this adventure comedy movie,  The band of pre-teens who call themselves "The Goonies"  must overcome many deadly traps set by One-Eyed Willie.
